in democratic politics right now, led by president obama at the start of his second term is this effort to turn what has been long-standing majority support for liberal policies into appreciation that those policies aren't just individual free-floating technocratically good ideas that we agree on, those policies come from a worldview and a problem-solving approach that is in fact the governing philosophy of this country. we're a liberal country. we are not a center-right country the way the right always wants to tell us. we are a country where liberal policies are widely popular and, frankly, at the national level we express that right now by mostly voting for democrats. by a lot. that's the portrait of the country that the president was painting this week in his second inaugural, in tying this list of what get described as liberal policies to fundamental centrist, widely acknowledged, basically universal american values. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among t

asked me to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on. first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee, through the times that he served with such distinction as chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability review board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people and posts around the world. now, working together, we've achieved a great deal, but the state department and usaid have a lot of unfinished business from afghanistan to nonproliferation to climate ch

the game. yeah, obama won a round here and got reelected, we can he not let the country we love go to hell in a hand basket in the meantime. if you don't get engaged right now he's going to win the battle when he wants to transform it into his utopian process. and he's going to bankrupt the country and your constitutional rights. the time for feeling down, sad, depressed, it's over. right now we live in the greatest country in the the world, the country needs you right now, so it's time to engage and i also have a message to elected republicans and conservatives in d.c. it's time to stop fighting among yourselves, tonight, begin uniting. now, obama, he wants you divided. he's wanted that since election day and frankly he's done a good job at that. if you do unite, you have the power, you can vote yes, you can vote no. if you stand u tnited on the principles, you cannot accomplish a thing if you continue to allow obama and the democrats to divide you. my advice to all of you in washington, i hope you're hearing me, get in a room, remember your principles, unite, fight, that's why we th

from the national labor relations board. the panels that obama did not have the power to make three appointments last year. david: extra cents. all right. timothy gator eggs is the treasury. a man the president has put to take his place is a lot more partisan. how will this affect our economy? joining us now, steve forbes, forbes media chairman editor in chief and star of forbes on fox which is tomorrow on fox news and 11:00 a.m. >> you're the host. we follow your lead. david: i fell yours. this guy's partisan background goes back to tip o'neill. of course that was the day when republicans and democrats actually dealt with each other. timothy geithner is clearly much more nonpartisan, working with republicans and democrats. how will that affect negotiations in congress? >> what it means is right now there will be no real negotiations. the president's way or the highway, and so the republicans have to do what ronald reagan did, first, start to get public opinion on your side. then you go on the real and that you can play. so far the republicans have not done it. the fact that they ba

, they have zero credibility with the gun rights community. they believe that dianne feinstein and barack obama wants to take away guns. they believe that in their bones. this legislation is so full of loopholes and wants to lay down a predicate to make it easier down the road to check gun owners and sue people who didn't store their guns properly. give the right government to go in people's homes. there is no trust that that is where the democrats will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states lik west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in
